Pipeline Scan Example for Using Gradle with GitHub Actions

This example YAML code shows how to add a Pipeline Scan as a build stage in a GitHub Actions build pipeline that uses Gradle.

The example includes a script that downloads and unzips pipeline-scan-LATEST.zip, to ensure you have the latest version, then runs pipeline-scan.jar using your API credentials. For improved stability, Veracode recommends that you change these scripts to use the Pipeline Scan Docker image.
